Description

Less Process, More Pixels: Alternate Approaches to Digitization and Metadata

Overzealous quality or useful quantity? As the Meissner-Greene approach gains more acceptance and is increasingly implemented, digitization efforts have yet to embrace this way of thinking and continue to produce item-level, fully described digital objects. The presenters explore alternative approaches to creating, describing, and presenting digitized content - both photographic and manuscript - that incorporate some of the underlying ideas of MP-LP.
